The Matthew’s Mountain Range, a chain of peaks covered in dense dewy forest rising out of the desert, provides a striking setting for Kitich Camp. The camp overlooks a river glade within the lush indigenous forest that is home to elephant, leopard, bushbuck, rhino, buffalo, as well as ancient cycads, spectacular butterflies, turacos and wild orchids.
The 6 traditional safari tents are all en-suite with alfresco stone bathrooms and safari showers. Kitich Camp’s cosy lounge with open fire overlooks the floodlit river glade so guests can enjoy their drinks while watching animals emerging from the forest at dusk. The camp has been built with as little impact on the environment as possible, and has achieved the Ecotourism Society of Kenya’s silver award.
Kitich Camp is an authentic bush camp and offers a unique and private forest wildlife experience. All activities are tailored to suit the individual preferences of the guests. Guests can walk along forest paths in the 900kmÇ of private untouched mountain wilderness guided by the Samburu and Ndorobo people and learn their traditional methods of tracking game. Natural rock pools and mountain streams provide crystal clear icy water where guests can swim. Birdwatching and cultural visits to local Samburu families are recommended.
